Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Djurgarden will be aiming to keep their title hopes alive when they face Ostersunds at Jamtkraft Arena on Matchday 21. Djurgarden aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Allsvenskan, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Ostersunds. Zambia international Edward Chilufya scored his second goal of the season in a 1-1 draw with Elfsborg, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
The hosts, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back draws with Norrkoping and Orebro. Ostersunds are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures, and given Djurgarden’s anything but brilliant form, share of spoils is on the cards in Sunday’s football match. In their last meeting in the national championship the two teams played out a goalless draw, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on draw.
Highlighted Team (Ostersunds):
Against all odds, Ostersunds made it to the 2017/2018 Europa League group stages. Despite being regarded as big underdogs in the two-legged tie against PAOK, the Swedish club did well to shock the Greek side in the play-off round and, as a result, they will have a chance to prove their worth on the big stage.
Ostersunds will face the likes of Zorya, Hertha and Athletic Bilbao in Group J and they will welcome their rivals at their Jamtkraft Arena. The stadium was opened on July 13, 2007 and the capacity of the venue is 8.466. Ostersunds, who were promoted to the Swedish top flight in 2016, did well to win the 2016/2017 Swedish Cup and that is considered as the club’s biggest success. The club was founded in 1996 and they are well known for their jerseys with red and black stripes.
Ostersunds play their away games in white shirts and white shorts and the likes of Saman Ghoddos, Jamie Hopcutt, Jamal Blackman, Samuel Mensiro, Michael Tidser, David Accam, Brian Wake, Lee Makel and Connor Ripley are the notable footballers who played for the Swedish club in the past.
